of promise for karen christiansen and ken jones. after ten years of marriage, they were expecting their first child. ken was teaching when he got the call... ken jones: it was a person from the y, and when they first started talking about karen, it was very strange because i thought it was going to have something to do with the pregnancy, and then when they said it was a stroke, it took a few minutes for it to kind of sink in. i went to the class, and that's all i remember. i know now that the teacher, she saw that i wasn't acting as normal or whatever that the other women were. the source of the problem was occurring inside karen's brain, the body's control center. dr. saver: the brain is an incredibly complex organ. it's the seat of the personality and thinking in our humanity. it has millions, or perhaps billions of nerve cells, and billions upon billions of connections between these nerve cells. it is organized in a very regular pattern from individual to individual. it is fed by a number of blood vessels that bring nutrients to different areas of the brain. the brain is about the size of

was thinking, i'm not a bad person and i just didn't know. i agree with karen that people are moved by individual stories. i filmed for over three-and-a-half years. i went to each of the training sessions. gideon's promise they get together every six months. i went to all of those and in between those trips i went to visit the individual lawyers. i thought if i can show people what their -- because i kept wanting to answer the questions why could anybody do this job. i wanted to turn that around and say how can you represent that people from the perspective of the people doing the work and what was motivating them and i thought it was to tell it through their eyes and show why they get so emotionally invested. the thing i would say is when you make a film, it can be very lonely you are by yourself with an editor and doing what you think you should do. so seeing with an audience what has been the most gratifying is people are rooting for the clients and in every screening somebody will stand up and say, it's young people and they will say, at sundance this kid stood up and he said i
can ask questions. you'll let me again ask karen, you spent the last year-and-a-half studying and observing how gideon's promise have been broken. what do you think is an obstacle to closing the gap between rich and poor people's justice. what have we learned about the solution? >> well, i think the biggest obstacle to closing this gap is the political desire to do so which is kind of -- i talked about that a little bit in my talk. but i think that, you know, and you can learn this lesson in many ways. i don't know when you go to work, i have to learn the same lessons over and over and they are a big epiphany for me each time t epiphany i had while i was working on this book i'm a journalist and i'm a generalist. i was really drowning in it for the first six months when i was reporting. i didn't know what was going on in court, i didn't know the language, i didn't know the process. it was all very complicated. and then i had my little epiphany which was that actually i shaolin to that little voice and realize what the clients were experienced going through this system and it
. what's the mood there? >> karen, i tell you, today, it's a beautiful day here in boston. i've been around the back bay all day. what i notice most is sort of the normalcy that's returned to here. i've said this before. it's an old saying in boston. we only care about three things in this town. politics, sports and revenge. our revenge is to go back to normal. what happened the other day will not change us. it's poignant that you just mentioned the third victim being named was a chinese national. because boston is an international city. it's never more international than it is on patriots day, the marathon day, when we have people from all over the world running in this race. on that day if you go back and look at the footage, the last part of the race, the last part of that finishing line, the flags of every country in the world line boyleston street. when that bomb exploded, the first responders had to tear those flags down and get to the victims. and those flags lay on the street like victims themselves. so what happened the other day was not just an attack against boston. just n
be limited to three rounds or four rounds like mayor bloomberg wants to do? >> joining us now is karen finney, a former dnc communications director, and soon to be a colleague/host here at msnbc, and julian epstein, a democratic strategist. welcome to you both. karen, he just doesn't have an answer, does he? he just does not have an answer to that question about limiting magazine clips, does he? >> no, no, he doesn't. that's why he threw in, you know, bloomberg, right? because that's one of those shiny objects for conservatives, you know. he clearly doesn't have an answer. but also the answer that he would give you is wrong. i mean, we know from a number of these horrible incidents that have cured over the last few years, we've heard incident after incident that it was when people were having to change the magazines, that's when they were able to be, you know, jumped on by some people in the crowd. i think that was what happened with gabby giffords. >> it is. >> there's a young man from aurora will tell you because there was a jam, that actually saved his life. so the facts don't, once again,
and in some cases because of personal experiences and in some cases, both. let me introduce them. karen chen is an attorney manager for the san francisco public defenders office, kathy, whose son battled mental illness, can is a subject treatment expert for the medical center. danny is the associate director for the serial neeb breet program for the city of san diego. and san francisco chief of police. gary is a psychiatrist and laura's law advocate and eduardo vega of the mental health association of san francisco. let me start by opposing a question to karen chen from the public defenders office. karen, can you -- how about if you start by giving us an overview of how the city handles this conflict between treatment and civil liberties. >> an involuntary hold starts in san francisco when a peace officer or a clinician makes the determination that the person is due to a mental disorder, is a danger to others or danger to self or gravely disabled. gravely disabled means that person does not have the ability to provide for basic needs such as food, clothing and shelter. and the legal represe
reform. and we are also joined by karen finney. thank you both for your time. >> thank you. >> miss soto, also, our condolences on your loss. >> thank you. >> karen, this was a big day but there is more work to do? >> yeah. there is absolutely more work to do. and look, i think for those members of the senate and anyone in the house who does anything to try to block movement and just the discussion and a vote, that is, you know, reverend al, that is to me voter suppression of a whole new kind because that is really trying to suppress the will and the voice of the people like miss soto who deserve a vote and these members of congress, part of what they are trying to do here is protect one another so that they don't have to be on record as taking a vote that they know will be hard to explain to their constituents back home, given the numbers of people who support very simple commonsense measures, like background checks. >> let me talk to jillian a minute. you've shown real courage stepping out, bearing the pain that i don't -- i couldn't imagine. and being there in washington, not a politi
post" columnist, dana milbank. msnbc contributor, jimmy williams and karen finney, a former communications director for the dnc. and a newly named anchor here on msnbc. so hang in there, karen. let's start with you, dana. we just saw in our top lines a clip from asa hutchison's appearance in washington. the guy rolled in with more bodyguards an justin bieber. you write about the gun goons, i'm quoting you. "about 20 of them, roughly 1 for every 3 reporters fanned out through the national press club, some in uniforms with gun holsters exposed, others with ear pieces and bulges under their suit jackets." rachel maddow was talking about the bullying at this event last night. gun goons, bullying, photographers. is this how the nra and gun lobby chooses to woo the press, by bullying? >> well, martin, i was not paddled as a child. my judgment may be suspect in this. i thought it a bit odd to go to the national press club, the very heart of the first amendment in this country and find that they were searching reporterses, they had these ropes cordoned off. they had these big burly
and hurt other people. even though when the karen's really do care and make wrong decisions or they don't keep their eyes open because they are victims themselves. they can try as hard as they can. it's tough but it seems that the parent does play an important role in these cases. >> thank you all very much and thank you all for joining us.

. >> joining me today is democratic congresswoman karen bass. congresswoman, it's great to have you here with me. let's start off with looking at this in the different context of it being just what it is, a disappointing jobs report for march. as we look at the numbers, the unemployment rate ticking down to 7.6%, only 88,000 jobs added. the speaker, john boehner saying that the president's policies continue to make it harder for americans to find work. what was your initial and initial reaction to hearing that this march number is pretty en anemic. i'm. >> i'm not shocked by it. effect that the sequester is having, employers who are reluctant to add new jobs and people facing layoffs, i think it's a disappointment. i hope when we go back to congress that we find a way to end this sequester because i'd hate for this trend to continue until next month. >> surely there could be a revision if we take a live look at the markets again today, seeing how the market is reacting, 121 points on the dow jones before lunch time. it really is rocking. what people would hope would be a better end to th
, karen finney. karen, in the fight over gun safety reform, it seems pretty tough to challenge the idea of background checks which 90% of the nation supports. and yet senator flake says it's a bridge too far because of too much paperwork. that's actually what he said. what's your reaction to that? >> well, my reaction is i hope all of the groups that have been doing such an incredible job creating the momentum and energy to sort of counterbalance the nra and these kind of foolish comments from these senators, i hope they're outraged. i hope their answer is, how dare you? because as this case, you know, obviously we're going to learn much more about what happened in texas, but i think the one thing we do know is that it shows us as gun safety advocates have been saying all along, we need a multipronged approach. it isn't just about school safety. it isn't just about mental health. it is about background checks. law enforcement has said that is one of the most effective things from their perspective. we aught to listen to them. it's about multiple points of entry we have to attack this pr
. and columnist at the hill and msnbc political analyst, karen finney. kansas congressman tim hul op-ed called the war on motherhood. arguing that redefining marriage to remove parents of both sexes from the equation would further the destruction of the family. it was accompanied by this cartoon showing the signs -- what, and ever, substituted for figure leaves on a man and woman. last week a conservative radio host, rick whiles actually suggested that the north korean nuclear threats are the result of same-sex marriage. and southern baptist convention president fred leuter did anything but rebuke him. >> could our slide into immorality what is unleashing this madman over here in asia to punish us? >> it could be a possibility, man, i'm not that, strong in prophesy, but i would not be surprised that there's not a connection there. >> no, he's not that strong on prophesy. meanwhile in a reversal of the rob portman effect, arizona congressman ma'am salmon said the fact that his son is gay does not change his view of same-sex marriage. >> i don't support the gay marriage. i'm just not there as fa
and soon to be msnbc host, karen finney. and democratic strategist, julian epstein, former counsel for the house judiciary committee. karen, it's certainly reassuring as kristen just said we had 68 votes to allow debate on gun legislation. >> right. >> but how much of a bellwether is that vote when it comes to the vote ahead on the actual legislation? >> well, i think as was saying, it shows how tough it's going to be. we know they have called for weeks of debate. that is what i was hearing earlier today. part of the strategy on that, and julian knows this process better than i, will be to attach amendments that could ultimately kill the overall bill but also to try to wear down the folks, like the folks from sandy hook, to try to, you know, wear down the sort of attention that's being paid to the issue. pew has a study just out today that shows a majority of americans really are paying attention to this issue. but i think, you know, the longer the debate goes on, i think some are hoping the less focus and attention it will get from the public. >> right. and julian, compromise asid
